Have just stayed at this Motel in Room 12. As they say if you pay cheap you get cheap. The room was very basic but had a comfortable bed with electric blanket, a television and a fridge that rumbled and banged like an old washing machine. The bathroom? Well shower room was one with no door therefore, when having a... More

Recently booked and stayed for 7 nights - used the accommodation as a base for day trips. The rooms are acceptable and are reasonable value for the price. The real bonus is the proximity of the Motel to all the major attractions of Hobart, which are all within walking distance. Nearby are great bakeries and restaurants, shopping centres and pubs....

Travelling alone, on a Tuesday night, middle of winter, stayed in a Queen room. It's not luxurious, but for this price, probably the nicest place I've stayed - tidy, well-presented rooms (not those tacky colour-patterned bed covers that every other motel seems to have). Large mirror, a table to work on, free wifi. Best of all, the woman at reception... More

A great place to stay, if you need a bed and shower. No fancy services. It's an old motel, but such a easy place to get too. 10 minutes walk to Salamanca Market or Hobart town. You also have Sandy bay shops, just 5 minutes walk with great restaurants .Red Decker bus picks up or drops off just on the... More

The location of this hotel is exceptional for it's proximity to Sandy Bay shops, Salamanca and the city. The staff are helpful and checkin was very easy, however the rooms are very dated. I stayed in a twin share room (queen bed and single bed), the bed itself was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was missing tiles in the shower,... More
